Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday offered all possible help to Delhi in managing its spiralling Covid cases, even as he lauded the ‘unsung heroes’ of Punjab for their excellent work in handling the pandemic in the state, while assuring of full preparedness by his government to augment healthcare facilities to prepare for a possible second wave of the pandemic.

“Delhi is fighting a tough battle, and we are there to help if needed. I have said that earlier also,” the Chief Minister said, while assuring all possible measures by his government to prepare for the second wave in Punjab.

While nobody knew when the second wave would strike Punjab, experience of the NCR and other states/regions showed it was an almost certain eventuality, he warned, expressing the confidence that the Health Department and OTS employees will once again rise to the occasion to meet any challenge.

While it was the duty of the state government to support the healthcare and other frontline workers, many of whom had got infected and some had even lost their lives to Covid, the Chief Minister said it was also the responsibility of the people to actively partner the state in the fight against the pandemic by strictly following all safety norms. He declared ‘MASK HI VACCINE HAI’ as the resolve of Mission Fateh for the next few months, till a vaccine against Covid finally comes.

Digitally launching 107 Health & Wellness Centres (Tandarust Punjab Sehat Kendras) to boost healthcare infrastructure in the state, and provide health services to patients at their doorsteps in both rural and urban areas, the Chief Minister lauded the efforts of the Health and Medical Education departments which had made these centres a success story in just three years.

Exhorting the people to join his government in making Punjab the No. 1 state in Healthcare, the Chief Minister said his government was focused on strengthening healthcare facilities, especially levels 2 & 3, with the aim of saving lives through early testing and treatment. Urging the people to avoid crowded places and indoors, and not have large gatherings and social functions, he stressed the need to observe full precautions, especially washing hands and wearing masks.

Listing the various measures taken by his government to manage the pandemic, he said besides record increase in testing facilities and health care for COVID patients in L-2 and L-3 health facilities, Plasma Banks had been opened and free Mission Fateh Corona Kits provided to patients undergoing home isolation.
